Arriving From Out of Town

Arriving by air

If you are arriving by plane, you can take a car, a taxi or public transit from Pearson International Airport or the Toronto Island Airport. If you are taking public transit from Pearson International Airport choice of four TTC bus routes:

  • 192 Airport Rocket – this bus takes you to Kipling subway station. From Kipling, take the subway eastbound to St. George subway station.
  • 58A Malton – this bus takes you to Lawrence West subway station. From Lawrence West, travel southbound to St. George subway station.

If you are arriving in the middle of the night or very early in the morning, public transit access is limited because the subway doesn't run between 1:30 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. To get to downtown Toronto during these times, you can take the 300A Bloor-Danforth bus from the airport, which provides overnight service along Bloor Street and Danforth Avenue. We suggest taking the bus to Bloor and Yonge (which is minutes away from campus) and catching a taxi from there to your final destination. To reach mid-town Toronto, take the 307 Eglinton West bus, which provides overnight service to Yonge Street and Eglinton Avenue. From this intersection, you will be able to catch a taxi to your final destination.

If you decide to rent a car at Pearson International Airport and drive:

  • Follow the airport signs that direct you to highway 401.
  • Take highway 401 east to the Yonge Street south exit.
  • Go south on Yonge Street for 10.4 km to College Street.
  • Turn right onto College Street and then turn right onto St. George Street. Feel free to stop at the Centre for International Experience located at 33 St. George Street to pick up useful orientation information, find temporary housing or store your luggage.

If you are flying Porter Airlines and decide to take public transit from the Toronto Island Airport:
